It's been hot and humid out this way as well, the mosquitoes were fucking annoying as hell today.

Speaking of dessert, I got a tub of smarties ice cream for a two bucks. I was pretty happy about that. Though, it's been so warm I mostly just want to throw it onto my face..

I won't be rushing out to buy a standard, that's for sure. I know how to shift and all that, but it seems an unnecessary hassle. I hear they get better mileage, so that's a plus.

Apparently, they're also cheaper, so there's that. A buddy of mine got a Mazda 3 for $2,000 less because he opted for the standard model.

I still am on just my learners permit. I'd like to take driver's ed, as I am somewhat confident on the road right now, but my other skills are really lacking. I haven't been driving much in the last few months though, and it shows.

It makes me wonder.. why oh why didn't I get this done and over with when I was 16?

I learned on a manual, I've never driven an automatic. Seems kinda lazy

Apparently manual cars tend to be easier/cheaper to repair if they break, as well.

I love my little jelly bean car

I didn't get my licence until I was 22, I think... I never really needed it while I was a student, since I lived on campus, and the public transport here is pretty good. But the down side of waiting is that I had to pay for lessons to get driving experience, since I wasn't living at home, and all my friends only had a probationary licence (which prohibits them from taking a Learner driving).
Thank goodness they didn't enforce a minimum number of hours of driving before I got my Ps back then!

Yeah, the timezones haven't been good to me lately. Only reason I'm here now is cos I called in sick to work.

Had a bit of an eventful weekend... got new strings on the bass, went to a birthday party, saw U23D again ...
(and then got my car trapped overnight in the IMAX car park cos I forgot it closed at midnight )

U23D was gone from Dublin by the time I got there

I don't think I'll ever get to see it now, dagnabbit. Unless they eventually do release it on DVD or something.

Often enough, I guess! I took it over to a friends' place who plays piano (and is also a U2 fan)... we tried to bash out a few songs together, it was great fun

Ack, sorry RB! I know it's come back to a few places in the US and Canada, so you never know.

Dammit, so much for my vain hope of overtaking you in posts in this thread.
